Re: Where are we all from?

This is a fun thread!
I'm from Japan, a countryside just outside Tokyo.
But now I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Will find some pics to post here when I'm home again.

Re: Where are we all from?

I can't wait to see the Japan photos..Everyone is posting such great pictures.

Here are a few more from me-

The first is the Liberty Bell which is pretty important here.

Then William Penn- he founded the state and there is a myth that the reason why no sports team from PA ever wins anything is because people started building their buildings taller than his statues...there used to be some law that you couldn't build higher than his statue but that is long gone....

Then is Ben Franklin- a pretty cool guy who is created with one of the best quotes ever "Beer is proof that God loves us and whats us to be happy". A very smart man..even though I don't like beer as much as champaigne (right Choupi?)

And finally- the Pagoda- it's in Reading and I'm not sure why. It's cool though.

enjoy!

He's my bestest boyfriend!

We have just recently got a conservatory put on, so this will be used as a room and hopefully leaves 3 bedrooms. price of the home incase people were wondering i think was roughly 215 thousand £, i am interested in seeing the prices of others home to see how much cheaper it is!

Re: Where are we all from?

I've no idea how to post a photo!!! If you would like to visit the Bariloche site, it's at www.bariloche.org. And to see a few really nice pics, try:
http://www.bariloche.org/ac-lt-1.shtml.
I love seeing all your photos. I'm glad we all seem to be pleased with where we're living. In my case, our move to Patagonia was a big step, as we used to live in Buenos Aires, a sophisticated capital with all the cultural movement we were used to, to a simpler life 1700 kms. away, but we've never regretted it. This is Paradise!

Re: Where are we all from?

Hi guys!

Thelma, didn't I see you in another thread?? Anyway, I've been to Bermuda, and I love it!

All these pix are so lovely! joeb, the house prices in UK are outrageous [I was just there].

My city is boring but I'll see if I can find pix for you to guess where I live...

Re: Where are we all from?

Thanks everybody for all their photos so far.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Where are we all from?

These pictures are a mixture from where I live now

These three are from Hobart the capital city of Tasmania the forgotten part of Australia, it's the island that is frequently left off the map, this is where I am based and they are taken from Mt.Wellington which looks over the city, it isn't very high, but it does give a very good view.

Re: Where are we all from?

Thelma - the Bermuda pics are gorgeous - very exotic! And joeb-guess it's no big surprise for you to learn that house prices where I live are pretty identical to you!! English property prices won't drop until you move a lot further North than where you and I live- we are both far too near London to have cheap houses!!

Re: Where are we all from?

Hey GWH, the pics from where you live now are so different from where you come from. South Australia is so far from Norway! Don't you miss it too much?

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

I am actually in Tasmania and not South Australia, SA has more a desert landscape than Tasmania does.
